Jeeps and Jerks

A continuation from Part I, Black-Hawks and Bourbonfor Mondays Finish the Story


What the hell’s wrong with a yellow Jeep?

“They finally made their escape, eh? But, they go from Black-Hawks, to Jeeps?” Kurt glanced up from the manuscript, squinting through his heavy-rimmed glasses.

Were they even prescription?

“Yes. It’s after the helicopters crashed at the edge of the Amazon, remember?”

Kurt leaned back in his chair and studied the ceiling.

“Right. Right. I sort of forgot that bit. After the fourth whiskey, things got a little…hazy.”

Sarah sighed. Maybe it wasn’t too late for nursing school.

“They’re fleeing the global pandemic.” She frowned. “What’s wrong with the Jeep?”

“It’s yellow.”

Sara pinched the bridge of her nose.


“Ya, can’t have yellow Jeeps down in Brazil at the edge of the rainforest. Just doesn’t make sense.”

Even a Bulleit couldn’t cure this; only a giant croc swallowing him whole.

“Kurt,” Sarah said, biting the inside of her cheek to stop herself from cursing. “I think it’s time to call it quits for the night.”




Ah, there’s yet more to this daring duos adventures. Find it here, at Mangos and Migraines

    • So glad to hear you are liking it! Hopefully you can leave reviews when you’re finished? I’m having SUCH a hard time getting folks who have read my novels to review them on places like Amazon and Goodreads. 😦 Not sure how to encourage, without being pushy…

      Looking forward to another excellent challenge next week. I’m liking Kurt and Sarah so much, they may appear again someday.

  2. Love this. 🙂 The horrors of having someone read your manuscript and tear holes in it! I particularly like the lines about going to nursing school and the giant croc eating him whole – it’s the interjection of her thoughts that make it work so well. 😀
